Why Men Pick on Each Other // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
It's inevitable. When a group of men get together and they begin to feel a bit of ease around one another, they will pick on each other. Some guys relish in this, others can't stand it. Some of you likely feel like you're the guy always getting picked on and rarely doing the picking. While there are mature and immature ways to go about this, I wanted to share some thoughts on what is going on within the relationship (that we're often not aware of) and how it can be good for comradery.

America vs. American // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
In the last several years, America's worst citizens have been on constant display. Rather than showcasing true American values, we show American citizens behaving in very un-American ways and then call that "America".

I Used to Be Fat // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
When I hit 230lbs, I knew I had to make a change. I'm no fitness model, but I've been able to maintain a healthy weight for well over a decade. Fads are fun, but if you want to make a long term difference, you've got to change your mindset about yourself, your relationship with food, and your lifestyle will follow.

Disrupting Patterns in the New Year // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
Special Edition! First episode in the 1977 Wagoneer! Each new year allows for a milestone in our lives and can be a great time to pause, reflect, and take stock of where we are and who we desire to be. In this episode, I talk a bit about the Wagoneer, but also about recognizing patterns in our lives. Every man has patterned behavior that should become more clear over time. When we learn to see these patterns, we have the opportunity to disrupt them and get on a different track; one that leads to being the man we desire to be.

Christmas Thoughts // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
Merry Christmas! In this episode I share some thoughts on Christmas and its often melancholy nature it sometimes inspires. While Christmas is filled with lots of cheer and love and thoughts about family and Jesus, there seems to be an accompanying stream of sadness that shows up at this time of year.

The Reverse Hierarch of Needs // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
We are at a time when many of the basic needs have been met, but it feels rather artificial to many men. We've lost a direct connection in providing for our fundamentals and it can lead to anxiety and unsureness for us as we seek to better ourselves.

The Problems Men Face // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
Here's the thing: men have real issues. You're not alone in this. While I will never champion a victim mentality, it's healthy and good to recognize and name the things we're battling against. Here are some of the challenges men all around you face on a daily basis, and the first step to overcoming them.

Happy Thanksgiving! // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
Although 2020 has been a crazy year (and it's not over yet) there is a lot we can still be thankful for. Take a moment to thank God for your health, your friends and family, your dog, and maybe even your cat.

The Regressive Movement // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
You've likely heard of the Progressive Movement which was started by presidents Woodrow Wilson and Teddy Roosevelt, among others, and has continued to this day. However, we're now seeing something I'm calling the "Regressive Movement" which uses the past as a tool, not for growth, but for blame. And, it keeps people stuck in a victimized mindset with the only hope being a great rescuer i.e., big government.

Causeless Young Men // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
Throughout history young men have been more easily persuaded to go to war or join some reckless cause in an effort to make their mark on the world and have the sense of belonging to a group. Shame on us for not offering them a worthwhile cause to fight for.

Are You Driven or Deliberate? // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
For many men, apathy and abdication of responsibility is the natural state. It's not surprising, then, that when we hear of a man being driven and passionately pursuing something that we champion him. However, there is a difference between being driven and being deliberate.

Should Men be The De Facto Leader? // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
We talk a lot about leadership here at Wolf & Iron, but does this mean that men should always be the de facto leader? Speaking particularly of leadership roles in the home, this episode talks about why I believe men are called to lead. Spoiler, it's not because we're always better at it.

Privilege Thinking is Pure Rot // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
If you're looking at the world through the lens of "who's privileged and who isn't" you're going to find plenty of what you're looking for. However, you'll be feeding a scarcity mindset and using your privilege meter as a way to determine your ability to achieve in life.

Why Do We Do Social Media? // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
We're over a decade familiar with social media. The ability to connect with people all over the world in an instant is now something we take for granted. But, why do we do it? What do we hope to get from it. As many people are looking for alternatives to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, do we really know what we want to accomplish on a new platform?

Response vs. Reaction // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
Have you ever found yourself reacting to a situation rather than responding in the way you would like? We all have a natural instinct to respond to arguments and frustrations, but learning how to craft a "response" that we can be proud of takes time. In this episode I'll walk you through the difference between the two and how to get to a place of responding rather than reacting.

The Courage Of Belief // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
It takes a courageous man to witness the chaos in the world, along with the love in the world, and still believe in an Ultimate Good. Atheist can, at their discretion, opt out from the challenges that arise by holding onto an objective moral standard. Christians cannot.

Adam In The Garden // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
I sometimes hear men say that much of the self-help and "getting in touch with our emotions" is weak sauce, new age stuff that men don't need. In this episode I use the story of Adam in the Garden of Eden after the fall, as an example of just how key emotional insight is to us as

The Next Insanity // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
I'll be honest: this isn't something I want to talk about. I really wish we didn't have to deal with this next, but it is very apparent that pedophilia is going to be the next big push by the liberals. Men, we have to be aware of the reality of this. As much as I don't want to talk about this or deal with this, it is imperative that we do.

Why We Don't See More Founding Fathers // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
Every 4 years or so we're presented with some less-than-stellar candidates for president. When we look at the political landscape and see the types of people who typically run for office, we may wonder "where are all of the 'Founding Father' types of men that this country was built upon?"

The Blessing of Disruption // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
A rigid, routine and predictable life will kill you. There is a blessing in being disrupted, even when it's forced upon us. In this episode I talk about the mindset of those that thrive during the opportunities disruption affords.
